In the heart of the old city is former royal residence built in a blend of the Rajasthani and Mughal styles. A part of this palace is now a museum. The rest of the palace serves as the living quarters of the royal family of Jaipur. The palace also has an art gallery with an excellent collection of miniature paintings, carpets, royal paraphernalia and rare astronomical works.
Also known as the Palace of Winds was built in 1799. It is a part of the City Palace and was commissioned by Sawai Pratap Singh. The Hawa Mahal was designed for the ladies of the royal household to watch the goings-on on the street while themselves remaining hidden from public view.

It is situated 32 kilometres (20 mi) from Jaipur and when full covered an area of 15.5 square kilometres (6.0 sq mi).
